Today we used chalk to write on the ground as well as the typical preaching with the PA, handing out tracts and one-on-one conversations.
I think the chalk worked really well. I found the most effective place was at the bottom of the stairs leading into the train station. People coming down the stairs actually stopped, turned around and read the words. People coming up the stairs read them on their way up. I was surprised by how many people actually stop to read chalk messages on the ground. I guess it’s just natural curiosity.
It’s also a valuable evangelism method because after you leave the area, the words still remain.
Has anyone else ever tried this method? What else has worked for you?

I have not used chalk. But I have employed the homeless to invite the city of Lubbock to come worship… sing, pray, preach, and take the communion… on the streets, corners, empty lots, city parks, alleys, court house steps, and finally in front of the locked up church house doors of our community.
It has a way of bringing out the true colors of people…
Thanks for the post.
